Anamorphic and other lenses for sale

Recommended Posts

Long time lurker (finally decided to register), first time poster. I'm selling two gorgeous anamorphic lenses: The trusty Sankor 16c and the Optivision XW 5000. I'm also selling some FD lenses, zooms, Tokina MD Zoom, filters, clamps, and some other bits and pieces.

 

Sankor 16c (with lens caps, pouch and original box) - $250

 

2X compression, coveted blue flares, small, light weight.

 

Barrel has minor cosmetic scuffs, glass is flawless. It's nice, but I've barely used it in the 8 years I've owned it. And you can't go too wide with it. Here's a video I shot with the Sankor/GH13/Helios 44M:

Optivision XW 5000 - $350

 

2X compression, very sharp, large barrel (I can go as as wide as 28mm on the GH13, in 2.40:1. Any wider and you get vignetting. 35mm on the GH13 covers the full frame with no vignetting), lens flare seems to match the color of the light (tungsten looks white, sunlight looks orange, mag flashlights give blue flare).

 

The barrel also has minor cosmetic scuffs, but the glass is great. I bought it second hand from a camera shop, so it didn't have lens caps. I do have a small bag I bought for it that I'll throw in for free. Videos shot with the Optivision:

Vid Atlantic Clamps - $30 each

 

Basic Clamp with 60mm thread base, plus 52, 55 and 58mm step rings (the 55 doesn't actually come with the package, but I used one I already had that I'll unclude), extra screws and a pouch for the rings and screws.

 

72mm Front Filter clamp, for larger anamorphic lenses/filters.

Vivitar 67mm Macros (1, 2, 3) - $10 each

 

Very sharp, clean glass. I also have a pouch, and 72-67 and 67-72 step rings for use with the filter clamp, macros and macros with filters, included for free.

(The Anamorphic Selfies and Butter videos I posted above used these macro/anamorphic combinations).

Manfrotto Lens support - $40

 

Telephoto lens support that I used to support my Optivision lens as it's bulky and heavy. It has an articulted head, extendable support and a quick release plate, multiple threads for use with a tripod. Very handy, but if I'm selling my Optivision, I won't have any use for it.

72mm Filters:  Vivitar Variable ND $15, Tiffen Circular Polarizer $15, Tiffen UV Haze 1 Protector $5, Tiffen 4 Filter pouch $5

 

Clean, good quaity. I'll include Bower 52-72 and 55-72 step rings and the pouch for free if you buy all three filters.

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm 3.5-5.6 zoom - $70

 

Excellent condition, barely used. I'm the original owner.

Canon EF/s 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 zoom - $70

 

Excellent condition, I'm the second owner but I've barely used it.

Tokina MD 28-70mm 2.8-4.3 zoom - $25

 

Minolta MD mount, excellent condition, great quality, pretty fast at wide angle for a zoom (f/2.8). Includes a pouch. I'll also throw in an MD-MFT adapter if the buyer wants it (free).

 

Canon 135mm 3.5 FD lens - $10

 

Glass is great, but the serial number was scratched off by an earlier owner. It's missing the front lens cap, but has a Hoya Filter protecting it (the owner before had keept it attached at all times, so he said). It's nice, but a bit too slow of an aperture for my needs.

Canon 28mm 3.5 FD lens - $10

 

Excellent condition, glass is clean. Has a generic lens cap and Hoya Skylight filter (came with it when I bought it). Again, nice, but a little too slow.

Canon 35mm 3.5 FD lens - $10

 

Excellent condition, clean glass, includes the original lens caps. Too slow wide open so I never really use it.

Kalimar 28-105mm 3.5-4.5 FD lens - $10

 

I'll sell all four FD lenses together as a kit for $30, or all the Canon primes as a kit for $25.

 

Excellent condition, clean glass. It's a decent lens, but I never use it. Includes original lens caps.

I'll also sell anamorphic kits with clamps, support, macros, filters, etc. at a discount, which will depend on what lens and extras you want.

 

I'll accept paypal or cash. If you're in the LA area we can do an in-person transaction, if you're comfortable with that.

 

I really need to get rid of a lot of these lenses I never use. I'll always love anamorphic, but I cant stand the dual-focus system, and the general pain of the anamorphic process. I've debated selling them for a long time, but I'm finally ready to let them go. I'd like to spend the money on more lights, and maybe a follow focus/rails, which I've managed to survive without all this time, but it would still help immensely. Thanks for browsing!

All of this gear is still for sale. I've found the original lens thread/alignment element for the Optivision Anamorphic lens. When I bought it it came with what is basically a clamp with 52mm thread. It was missing the original screw, but I bought a small pack of replacement screws from home depot. I've also found the lens pouches for the Canon FD lenses. All of these items are included fr free, of course.

      I am selling this like new lens. I’m at 500mm at most times and decided to go with the 500 PF. Bought this brand new from ABT in April 2020 and this is a good copy. This sale also includes a brand new Kirk replacement lens collar and the Nikon collar that came with it. Includes everything that came with it new. This lens could pass as brand new. Glass is excellent and no dings or scratches on the body. I'm asking $1,075. I will ship insured via UPS..

      Hi everyone!
      I wanted to showcase my passion project "The Night Knows No Shore" here on EOSHD. I've been a long time reader of Andrew's blog and it was his footage that inspired me to get an Iscorama a long time ago. 
      After doing tests with it for a while I came up with this idea for a movie. And you can now see the result on youtube: 
       
       
      It's a project made by one single actor and one single crew member (me) with one single focal length (a Canon FD 85mm 1.8) and one single focus anamorphic lens ( Iscorama pre-36). Don't expect much action. It's a slow film with lots of monologues and no real plot. It's about one young man's thoughts on society, religion, art, philosophy, life in general. Have a look. If you don't like all the "pretentious" talking, maybe you like the footage. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions, just ask. Enjoy!

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body
      - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal
      - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA
      - FEES & SHIPPING: PayPal fees and shipping paid by buyer.
       
      Please PM me if interested
